Sale Phase 1


FIFA is selling the tickets for 2018 Russia world cup according to sale phase 1, sale phase 2 and sale phase 3. In sale phase 1 FIFA sold the tickets in two ways that are Random Selection Draw and First Come First Served.  

The Random Selection draw Period was started from  September 14, 2017, until October 12, 2017. In Random Selection Draw they the FIFA use some lottery system to sell the tickets. In which if you applied for world cup ticket and luckily your name comes out in the lottery. You will be notified of the ticket and then you will have to make the payment. Even if your name is not in lucky draw still you will be notified saying that you couldn't make it this time, so you have to try in next sale phase. 

FIFA gives you two option to apply for the ticket in this random selection draw which is you can either apply for Team specific ticket or you can apply for the venue-specific ticket.  If you are fortunate and get the team-specific ticket ( TST7 package ) you are ultimately getting the ticket for the FIFA world cup final match. And I hope you know how difficult it is to get the ticket for the FIFA world cup final match

Next is First Come First Served method. This method started from  November, 16 to November, 28.  The first come first served, is the same way we buy the ticket for any other events. Here you will go to that ticket website and see if there is any ticket available. If yes, then you will make the payment and you will get your ticket. It is just like flash sale where we have to be hurry and smart to get it. If you are fast enough, only you can buy the tickets.

Sale Phase 2


The second sale phase of FIFA world cup 2018 ticket started in December after the final draw.  When groups and schedule for FIFA world cup 2018 were revealed. Just like the sale phase 1, here also FIFA started distributing the tickets first by random selection draw ( December, 5 – January, 31 ) and then which was followed by first come first served period ( March, 13 – April, 3 ). 

If you failed to get a ticket on both the sale phase, don't worry there is still one more phase left for the sale of FIFA world cup tickets

Sale Phase 3


In both sale phase 1 and sale phase 2 there was random selection draw but this will not be the case in sale phase 3.  Yes, there will be no random selection draw in sale phase 3. In sale phase 3 tickets will be sold based on first come first served. so, Here you need to be smart to grab the ticket of FIFA world cup 

The sale phase 3 will start from April 18 and it will continue until the end of the tournament.  This sale phase is also known as the leftover tickets sale, which means the sale of tickets will continue till all the tickets of FIFA world cup get sold. That is why you must get it as early as possible.
